Guest reviews for Howard Johnson by Wyndham Berkeley

Everyone (1)
4 out of 5
As advertised this is a simple yet comfortable and nice hotel. The gentleman behind the counter was very friendly and helpful. There’s plenty of off-street car parking and the WiFi was also very good. It’s a bit of a walk to any restaurants however it’s only a 5 minute walk to the BART station. The neighborhood an be a little unsettling especially at night so I would use Uber and Lyft when going anywhere. Overall considering the price of accommodation in San Francisco this is a good alternative where you can get in to the city in about 20 minutes on the BART.
